Here's another example of faith-healing gone wild. Can't anybody say only America has the fundamentalist religious ignorant. Seems Jehovah likes 'em dumb around the world, not only in the south.
Your report on Southern Baptists reminds me of a joke.
Question: Why don't Southern Baptists fornicate while standing up?
Answer: Someone might see them and think that they're dancing.
"You see, reverend, it really does not matter what the City Council wants, nor what the mayor wants, nor what the voters want. It only matters what God wants."
Or maybe what the Easter Bunny wants; or Elmer Fudd, or Bugs Bunny.
You see Thomas, imaginary characters don't want anything. They can't. You project onto a fictional character what you want.
But Jehovah, the Easter Bunny, and Elmer Fudd aren't real. People made them up. People have been making up gods and devils for thousands of years. Your god is just one of thousands of non-divine deities created by people for various reasons, but they're not real.
I realize you'll continue to think there's some invisible Sky Daddy out there; that the Bible is a true and literal word of an made-up divinity of an ancient tribe of sheep and goat herders. But it's not. It's just stories — like Aesop's Fables only not as good, moral, or instructive.
So imagine what your invisible friend wants. I know that Elmer wants wabbits, and wabbits want carrots, but I know that's just pretend — just like God.
Orr wrote while jerking his holy chain: "thousands of Holy Bibles are being distributed!!!"
This says a lot about Orr.
Orr, my only regret is that you were unable to witness the great love of the Jumping Jehovah in Oklahoma yesterday at the close range of 6 inches to pay for the sins of your parent's fornication.
Next time you're on your cross Orr, thank your loving, kind ole Jehovah for His mercy and love in Oklahoma yesterday. Thank Him for His blessings of tornadoes. Tell Him how grateful you are that he killed children full of Original Sin. Thanks Him for his wonderful love while He crushed people under debris. Give a special shout-out to the Holy Ghost for Gov. Nathan Deal putting Bibles in Georgia State Park motel rooms while in Oklahoma the Big Spook was ripping people to shreds. It takes a mighty big compassionate deity to use His powers to destroy innocent people. Praise His unholy name!
Orr, you're as phony as the bible and the murderous old bastard you worship.
Anyone who worships an imaginary deity who is a paranoid schizophrenic with a blood lust for humanity through slavery, murder, rape, and genocide, might reconsider their position. But you're not going to, are you Wilma? It requires less thought on your part to be a member of the religious rat pack than to break out of the darkness of religious ignorance. This is the reason your creationism and intelligent design should not be taught as science and historical fact, but remain in the category of myths and superstitions.
If this god was on earth he'd be Public Enemy #1, worse than all the despots combined.
You can call what he does love; I call it insanity.
The Tea Party is wearing its own suicide vest placed there by the religious nutters who have taken over the Tea Party.
The sooner it detonates the sooner some semblance of sanity may return.
Quite the contrary, MyGen, I want you to continue to be the blind, ignorant fool. You're quite entertaining as you are.
I don't hate Smith nor you. That's a waste of my time. However, I do enjoy the hypocrisy of politicians of all stripes. Their sanctimonious BS always leaves me laughing.
The same applies to those fundamentalist religions of imaginary deities and those claiming authority as those deities earthly mouthpieces.
Combine the two, politicians and clerics, and the laughter at the gullible never ends. It's non-stop comedic fodder.
Smith is a good old boy — part of the same bunch of rot since the beginning of politicians. It's always an honesty question with politicians; whether Bush, Obama, McCain, Nelson, Alexander, Clinton, Crutchfield, Littlefield, Fleichmann, or Smith.
And the answer is always the same.
